Unless you are trying to measure a short? An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. Please try again, only this time explain how to use Labview with the Agilent instrument. Thousands of instrument drivers, including the driver for the Agilent A, are available for free download from ni. If you are looking for an easy way to increase the speed, sensor support, and channel count of your test and measurement system then you may want consider adding NI CompactDAQ hardware to your setup. And will you please tell me that if suppose I want to set 10 volt on channel and then I have to use following command??

The NI CompactDAQ platform is an excellent hardware option agilenh consider when adding to or creating a user-defined, PC-based data logging or bench top automated test system.

How do I Troubleshoot GPIB Communications with the 34970A using Keysight GPIB Interface Cards?

For resources that outline the fundamentals of this industry-standard development environment, please refer to the links at the end of this section. User interface for A Matrix Switch Example. Each routine that composes the driver corresponds to a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, or triggering the instrument.

National Instruments provides a free LabVIEW instrument driver for the A, which gives you programmatic control over the unit from your PC, while having to do little or no programming yourself. I would recommend doing every command manually first and look at the measurements displayed on the A and convince yourself that they make sense.


AC 10,command does not even come close to setting 10 volts on the channels. Message 10 of However when the voltages around 4. LabVIEW is an industry-standard graphical programming environment that can be used to quickly and easily acquire, analyze, and present data from the A.

Most Active Software Boards: LabVIEW itself is a graphical development environment for creating flexible and scalable test, measurement, and control applications rapidly and at minimal cost.

I’ll assume that the A is in slot and A is in slotA is in slot Introduction to the A Instrument Driver An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. Sample code created with instrument driver functions. Instead of telling me how to use the agilent tool which I have oneit explains why I should buy something else.

For slot A you are going to have to read the manual since I have not used this card. I am using Modbus Library in order to communicate with my device.

Using the Agilent A with LabVIEW – National Instruments

Hello, I am dealing with Agilent Data logger in order to supply voltage to my device and for switching purpose. With these, you can quickly and easily take your application pgib beyond merely programming the instrument to create a completely user-defined solution. Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type. Six such ready-to-run examples are provided by National Instruments in the driver.


Setting up the hardware to achieve these high rates, resolutions, and channel counts has never been easier or quicker. Now I’m getting problem in configuring two wave forms simultaneously by time delay. This should all be agilet by looking at the schematics of the Means what step should I follow. AC 10,from NI-Max. Usually in the hundreds,etc It is very inconsiderate.

Any custom LabVIEW application you create will be composed of a front panel, which is the graphical user interface, and a block diagram, which is the flow chart-style code created with these agulent blocks VIs. Learn more about our privacy policy.

How to start acquiring data simultaneously.

Using the Agilent 34970A with LabVIEW

Though all of these examples are intended to serve as a starting point for the creation of a custom application, agikent may be used without modification to immediately control the Agilent A. Figure 1 shows the graphical user interface of one of the A example programs, used to control the A matrix switch module.
